The Hon. J. D. CORCORAN (Minister of Works) obtained leave and introduced a Bill for an Act to amend the Bulk Handling of Grain Act, 1959-66. Read a first time.

The Hon. J. D. CORCORAN: I move:

That this Bill be now read a second time.

It provides for amendments of the principal Act, the Bulk Handling of Grain Act, 1959-1966, that are consequential on the amendments of the Barley Marketing Act, 1947- 1973, provided for by the Barley Marketing Act Amendment Bill,. 1977. The Barley Marketing Act Amendment Bill, 1977, provides for the extension of the statutory marketing powers of the Australian Barley Board to the marketing of oats. This Bill extends all the powers, rights and duties of the South Australian Cooperative Bulk Handling Limited in respect of the handling of barley to the handling of oats. I seek leave to have the remainder of the explanation inserted in Hansard without my reading it.

Leave granted.

Remainder of Explanation of Bill
